Hi
I called into Padstow a couple of years ago whilst working on the Cornwall show, it looks fantastic for ribs. I'm doing a two week Holliday starting the 31st of May to 7th of June (staying near st austel) and then moving to a cottage at Porthallow right on the beach for our second week. You never know you might see us there, Avon 560 me the wife and our golden retriever.
Cheers Steve

I often rib there. Be aware that at low tide it's all mainly sandbanks so you'll need to be at Daymer bay or out at sea. There are as such strong tides. We use a C- Fury rib there as its so easy to Launch from Rock by the sailing club. ( for sale in case anyone is inetersted) Only problem is where to park your car and trailer but just keep driving back up the road and you'll find a space eventually even if it's a ten minute walk. It's a busy bit of water so please respect the tide and various ski areas and speed limits.
Enjoy.

When it's nice it's lovely, when it's not it's very unforgiving.

Watch the wife d and tides and you'll have some great scenery and lovely wildlife.

Think about your escape routes if the sea blows up, the area is quickly wind affected.
